Intentional Organizational Wellness

Organization wellness does not happen in a vacuum. It takes effort, intention and planning. Find out how two Vermont organizations have made it part of their organization culture.

Presentation Summary:

This workshop will explore 2 Vermont agencies’ journeys in order to promote health and wellness to staff, those receiving services and the community at large.
